In a new teaser for 'House of the Dragon,' fire will reign ...

The long-awaited Game of Thrones prequel series House of the Dragon will premiere on HBO this Sunday. To entice fans even more for the imminent release, a brand-new promo trailer has been released.

The new series is set two hundred years before Game of Thrones. It will focus on the rule of the Targaryens, particularly King Viserys Targaryen (Paddy Considine) who wants to keep his grandfather's peace legacy. However, war is likely to loom ahead.

Considines King Viserys talks to his daughter, Princess Rhaenyra Targaryen, and her heir to the throne, Emma DArcy, that the future is uncertain, but the conclusion is clear. This is also a fun quick reference that this is a prequel series so how all ends is quite clear. From there, the iconic Game of Thrones theme kicks off.

George R. R. Martin wrote five books and several novellas set in the world, with more to be planned and developed. House of the Dragon is based on Fire & Blood, which chronicles the entire history of House Targaryen.

Matt Smith, Olivia Cooke, Steve Toussaint, Eve Best, Fabien Frankel, Sonoya Mizuno, and Rhys Ifans join Considine and DArcy in the main cast of House of the Dragon, which includes Condal and Miguel Sapochnik, who also serve as executive producers on several episodes.

House of Dragon will be available on HBO Max this Sunday night, August 21. Check out the promo below:
